Also some Windows 7 users experienced freezing of the GUI. q Bittorrent from June 23rd 2013 has a new maintainer.We tracked it down to a specific commit in boost 1.56. Christophe Dumez, the original author, has stepped down and transfered the project maintenance to sledgehammer999. q Bittorrent now has new Ubuntu PPA repositories with daily builds of q Bittorrent, for both stable branch and trunk (development branch).q Bittorrent v2.7.2 to v2.7.3 changelog: q Bittorrent v2.7.0 was released with a few interesting new features and some more polishing.
So until boost fixes it, I am going to use boost 1.55 for Windows releases. Now you can send money in Bitcoins and Litecoins too. I'm glad to announce that I uploaded today the first release candidate for q Bittorrent v3.0.0, the next major release of q Bittorrent.
Pay Pal donations will continue, but Bitcoins are preferred. I am really busy for the last few months in real life. If you take a look at the git repo you will see what the new commits fix. Some work has been done for the 3.2.x series, but serious development will begin after 3.1.10 has been released. We encourage people to start testing this release candidate and help us iron out the issues so that we can make a final release as soon as possible.
Finally, the future stable version will be v4.0.0 not v3.4.0 v3.3.16 changelog: Windows packages for v3.4.0beta_20170807_0320f9d5b5e are released. CAVEAT: The 32bit build doesn't work on Windows XP.
Also Qt 5.7.1 seems to be the last release supporting Windows XP.
NOTICE: If you find your torrents being paused instead of seeding, then right click on your torrent, choose Since it was a month since the last stable and v3.4.0 seems to be delayed just a bit, it was a good time to backport critical fixes and do another v3.3.x release. It contains various fixes for the things mentioned in the first beta plus a few new additions. Here is the current changelog: as "the best Bit Torrent client for Windows", citing the lightweight footprint, the no-crapware bundled installer and the clean interface among the top reasons for his choice.
Apparently the libtorrent 1.1.x series have dropped the support for that OS.It is very difficult to reverse this and obtain the real password. We had installed version 2.0.11 of SMF, which is the latest stable. The passwords weren't saved as plaintext, but as salted hashes. This version should be the last in the v3.2.x series. Windows user with many torrents don't need to manually exit the application before system shutdown anymore. The previous versions didn't work on older hardware. Provided by user Dom T4 (github) As you may have noticed already our Ubuntu PPAs were broken for quite some time now. I know I said that v3.1.10 would be the last of the v3.1.x series.In any case, we reset all the passwords and switched on the forum. This build also fixes a problem that requested "G:" drive on Windows. It will make it very difficult for the hackers to recover the real passwords. The upcoming v3.3.x is pretty stable and we'll focus to streamline it for release. In the meantime I backported some important fixes for Windows which resulted in crashes too. Chris Dumez, who maintained them, was unable to fix them. Head over to the download page and find the new PPAs. However there were 2-3 regressions that warranted a new release.The bug tracker is still on Launchpad, and the file releases will stay on Sourceforge for now.I would also like to move the Website to use an engine such as Wordpress or Drupal to facilitate editing.We have just uploaded q Bittorrent v2.8.2 to fix a few minor issues.
